DaPonte String Quartet as Mentors
“The DaPonte Quartet has opened our minds to the nuances of the composers’ lives and times, the intricacies of the expression of themes, variations, chord changes, key transitions, mood and dynamics. Most of all, the DSQ demonstrates what it is that elicits the grand sound of high performance in chamber music.”
– Linda Wilson, President Emeritus, Radcliffe College and amateur cellist.
“I can honestly say that the DSQ, the workshops, all of it, has changed my life in ways that I could only begin to dream about.”
– Alison Carver, violin
The DaPonte String Quartet have served on the faculty of the University of Northern Texas and are currently on the faculty of such places as the University of Southern Maine, Bowdoin College and Bay Chamber Music School.
They offer two annual three-day workshops, one for adults and a free one for high school students.
